Stories from Home

We all have a story to tell

The IU family is hundreds of thousands strong. Each of us has a story but few have the opportunity to share it with an audience.

Stories from Home was a storytelling project that brought to light the powerful experiences and perspectives of students, faculty, staff, alum, and friends who call Indiana home. Through Stories, we aimed to help Hoosiers cultivate a greater respect, understanding, and appreciation for one another. Though the project has been retired, the stories live on forever.

After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
